Job Description: Deepfence Community Leader

Could you be Deepfence’s Community Leader?

– Do you care about cloud security, and are you concerned about the impact of breaches on friends, family, colleagues, and the wider community?

– Do you agree that good security measures should be freely accessible to all application developers and operations teams, so there’s no reason not to make applications as secure as possible?

– Do you know (or can you learn) the nuances of security for cloud native applications, and are you comfortable talking with end users of security solutions?

If you can answer ‘yes’ to these questions, and you have a drive to encourage and educate a community, then Deepfence’s Community Leader role might be for you!

What Is Deepfence ThreatMapper?

Deepfence ThreatMapper is a successful open source project that discovers potential exploits in applications and production infrastructure spanning Kubernetes, serverless, Docker, VM, and bare metal.

ThreatMapper first discovers applications, hosts and services, and observes network traffic to learn the attack surface. ThreatMapper then scans the discovered infrastructure for potentially vulnerable components, secrets, and misconfigurations. Finally, ThreatMapper considers the potential vulnerabilities based on severity and proximity to the attack surface in order to build a ‘risk-of-exploit’ rank for the vulnerabilities.

With this information, AppSec or DevSecOps teams can identify which of the thousands of potential vulnerabilities pose the greatest risk, so they know exactly what to fix first.
